When it comes to hair, I've got a conundrum on my hands (or head, more aptly). I love having really long hair, but next-to no patience when it comes to styling.
I watch women with shorter, or thicker, hair rock up with perfectly-preened locks but, unless I spend hours or £££s, mine just looks limp and lacklustre.
'Blow dry it more often,' a friend tells me, but little does she know of the stress that comes with blowdrying long hair. You run the hairdryer over it to find you now need to spend ages brushing it again, or you have to go round with a brush and a dryer simultaneously, which isn't the easiest task for a mere mortal - how do hairdressers do it?
Anyway, the gist is I was struggling. Which is why, when I saw that the Revlon Salon One- Step Volumizer had topped the list of Amazon beauty bestsellers and received in excess of 13,000 five-star reviews, I knew I had to try it out for myself.
My god, was I impressed!
The clue is in the name, this really is a 'one step' solution, which is brilliant if you're in a rush, have children or are just plain lazy when it comes to haircare (like me!).
The unique oval design transfers airflow instantly to your hair and reduces the time it takes to dry and style, allowing you to brush, dry and style all at once.
It glides through my hair easily, teasing out tangles as it goes, and smooths out any knots in its stride. On top of that, it dried my hair much faster than another hairdryer I used and left me with much more body than usual: think, gravity-defying roots that actually last more than an hour.
And, if you're someone who worries about heat damage, the ceramic coating protects your hair from over-styling with even heat distribution that penetrates hair quickly from the inside. It also adds shine as you go.
Not only do I love my hair, but I love the fuss-free aspect and it means I never get myself in a tizz in-front of the mirror in the morning.
And, I'm not the only one. With over 13,000 five-star reviews, the Revlon Salon One- Step Volumizer has been a firm favourite of shoppers for a while now. Just take a look at some of the customer comments:
One wrote: 'I cannot quite believe how good this is. I have very thick, curly when wet, frizzy when dry hair. I have always relied on straighteners to get rid of the frizz. But last year I visited my sister in NYC and went to a blow dry bar. What a revelation! My hair looked so amazing, straight but with so much body, and it lasted for days. Trying to replicate this back at home was a tangled disaster. [So, I invested in this product and] I am amazed. It took about 10-15 minutes and my hair looks amazing (and even my husband agrees)! I could keep the tension and my hair didn’t get tangled up once. I look like I just stepped out of Dry Bar. This is the best beauty purchase I have made in ages!'
While another added: 'Super easy to use! Left my hair gorgeously straight with no frizz and so shiny. I didn’t get much volume from it but I wasn’t looking for that.
Only down side for me is that you need both hands to change the speed/temp setting.'
Now for the really good news. As part of Amazon's Black Friday sales today, the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumiser is reduced by over 50%, taking it from £62.99 to just £30. A real beauty bargain.
